A sudden rush for MQ's?

#2
PC gone mad. And the rest of the services will follow. It does not sit well with an infanteers ethos.

On another note, how about getting the non-married long term co-habiting heterosexual couples sorted first? Follow the aussie services rules (proof of shared interests/love?! and bank accounts from what has been explained to me) and completely give up on traditional values - ergo no more to complain about 8O

Agree with wibblefishbanana

lets sort out the silent majority first, before appeasing the loud minority. I honestly don't think it will be long before homosexuality becomes a career move.

I would expect that the MQ allocations will be equally open to hetrosexual and homosexual couples, who have entered into a civil partnership; to do otherwise would be discrimination.

Personally, so long as the relationship (whatever it is - hetro/homo) does not affect operational effectiveness or the integrity of the unit, I think that MQs should be available to them. However, I would expect that stringent criteria are applied to ensure that people do not meet a girl/boy on a Friday night and apply for a MQ the next week.

Tend to agree but Alexander the Great's army had a large contingent of homos and they were a pretty good mob. Was he the exception that proved the ethos?

I co-habited with 19 other blokes but they never gave us a MQ - was that discrimination I wonder?
